The COVID-19 pandemic is continuing and I would like to congratulate our local residents who have played their part by staying at home.
We understand these are tough times, and we are encouraging individuals and businesses to call us so we can work through the options together.
Payment arrangements for rates are available so just call our friendly Customer Service Team.
Our COVID-19 Financial Hardship Policy is just one of many initiatives we have put in place and this policy applies to all rateable properties within the shire.
We are not charging user fees to all sporting clubs that use municipal land or buildings and whose seasons have been affected by this health crisis.
The rent for the June quarter has also been waived for enterprises that operate from
Council owned or managed land which have been affected by the enforced business closures.
Our Economic Development, Maternal and Child Health and Community teams are speaking directly with businesses, health centres and residents and working hard to put measures in place to buffer the impact this pandemic is causing where we can.
We are hoping the state and federal governments will respond to calls for rate relief packages so that Council can continue to fund the many services and facilities that we all rely on.
